Inherent Academic Requirements
Inherent Academic Requirements: As a university that embraces diversity and endeavours to accommodate all students, USC supports equal access to education. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning, assessment, placement and other activities to enable students to participate in their program.
USC values the principles of universal design and actively strives to implement the seven principles in teaching and learning, and workplace environments.
The University has designed a suite of audio/visual resources to provide USC students, staff and visitors alike with an understanding of how various behaviours or practices could constitute discrimination or harassment, and how they may even affect the health and wellbeing of an individual.
Supporting staff with a disability
USC is committed to creating an inclusive environment that facilitates the equitable access and full participation in employment and education. Staff who have a temporary or permanent disability are encouraged to discuss any issues with their supervisor in the first instance so that the necessary supports can be established. USC welcomes applications from prospective staff with disabilities and will implement reasonable adjustments to enable equitable access and participation in the recruitment process.
